Prince George’s Senior Idol Winner William Ellis Represents the County in the Maryland Senior Idol Program at the Bowie Center for the Performing Arts April 4
By Annamarya Scaccia
Prince George’s County resident William Ellis has proven it’s never too late to follow your dreams. After all, the Fort Washington-based 68-year-old did win the 2012 Prince George’s Senior Idol Content, and will represent the county in the sixth annual Maryland Senior Idol Contest this week.
In January, Ellis, a veteran vocalist, competed against 29 other county contestants in the M-NCPPC’s Special Programs Division Senior Services Unit-sponsored program for hopefuls 60-years-old and older, ultimately being crowned the PGC Senior Idol winner. He, along with runner-up Barbara Washington, will participate in the two-hour statewide contest on Wednesday, April 4 at the Bowie Center for the Performing Arts, 15200 Annapolis Road in Bowie. The event, which is presented by the Maryland-National Capitol Park & Planning Commission, starts at 1 p.m. Tickets are sold out.
